‘Chick-Fil-A’, At Albany (New York) Airport Will Deliver — Albeit Just In The Airport.

I don’t think I have ever had ‘Chick-Fil-A’. So, I am NOT sure what I am missing. Yes, I have heard stories. I just looked. The nearest one to I is in Nashua, which is 90-minutes away. Hhhhm! The next time I am down South I will have to keep an eye.

I heard the story about these College kids that desperately wanted some ‘Chick-Fil-A’ chicken, on my radio, during my morning walk. That it was Albany Airport resonated. I think I have only flown into Albany Airport once (and I am sure I have never flown out of it). But, that was a pretty special flight for I. One I still remember — 52-years later. Yes, it was in 1968! 52-years ago. So, why was it so special. First airport I ever flew to on MY OWN. I was 14. Not sure exactly how it came to be. We, my adoptive parents and I, were travelling in New York state — we living in Buffalo, NY, 1967-1968. We were in NY city, by car. We were driving back to Buffalo, via Albany. Somehow my father had a ticket Albany, which he didn’t want or need. I convinced him to let me use the ticket and fly from LaGuardia to Albany — and for them to pick me up. He agreed. It was to be my Summer adventure. First flight on my own. I had been flying, frequently, all my life. But never on my own. It worked out. It was an adventure. I waited at Albany for them to arrive. So, that was the main reason this story piqued my interest. ‘My’ airport. I am sure there was no ‘Chick-Fil-A’ in 1968.

These kids should have had the gumption to first call up ‘Chick-Fil-A’ before they pooled their money to buy that $98 ticket.

‘Chick-Fil-A’ would have brought the food out for them. Now we all know. I am sure they are going to be doing a roaring business — following this publicity and now that everyone knows that they will deliver.

Only in America.

Our picnic ‘table’. Doesn’t get better than this.


P1040238We knew we were going to the British car rally in Wolfeboro, NH on Saturday. We knew the weather was going to be spectacular. We knew that the kids would be asking for lunch. Plus, Deanna wanted to ‘do’ the Cotton Valley after hearing my rave reviews. So I decided to synthesize all of this together for the best results. We all like Chinese though we have cut back drastically since I started my no-carb diet. The last time we had Chinese was May 30 — in Manchester when we went to meet my son, Matthew, for his 21st birthday.

Wolfeboro’s (other) Chinese restaurant, the Sea Bird, is right by the trail and we are talking abutting. We like the Sea Bird. Good, non-greasy, fairly authentic food and very nice owners. So on the way to the rally we stopped and picked up a menu (though I am sure there was one already in the car). We were done at the rally just before 1. I called and ordered 4 luncheon specials — two of them heavy on the appetizers because I would have to get by just on uncoated meat. We got the Sea Bird and only had to wait a few minutes. Gave us a chance to chat with the two owners Lan Sam and Guy Phu. Always very nice. When we told them our plans they gave us plenty of plates, utensils and some plastic containers. I carried the bag — and it did not break though we walked a total of about 3 miles with it. Strong bag.

It was delightful. It really is an exceptional trail. Pleasing to the senses in so many different ways. Picture postcard perfect scenery of lakes and mountains behind them. Lots of trees. Turtles in the water. Birds in the trees. Boaters of all varieties. The N.H. lakes region personified — at its best.

We stopped and ate. Chatted with some boaters and walkers. The food hit the mark. We left the soups till later. The fried rice last the kids till the next day.

It was very civilized and pleasant. So typical of Wolfeboro. It really is a quintessential Summer Resort.

Definitely recommend it. Get some takeout. Walk about a mile. Find a stone bench and Bob really will be your uncle.
